Pull My Tongue - Launches Feb 4th

One year ago I started working on a little idea I had and at the same time learn how to code in C#. So I have made everything in this game myself but am gonna have someone else do sounds and music. Before this I worked at Visual Dreams as the sole artist on games such as Herman the Hermit, Linkies Puzzle Rush and Slam Dunk Basketball. So I was used to Unity but not coding.

Anyway to the game, it is a simple puzzle game for mobile devices that is heavily inspired by games such as Cut the Rope, Pudding Monsters etc. The goal is to drag the chameleons (Greg) tongue through all the stars to the popcorn. I'm just gonna post some screens and gifs so you guys get the idea.

Main Menu

World Select

Ingame Screenshot

Ingame Screenshot 2


Greg Interaction

Gregs animation rig

The game is about 70%ish done, I yet have to add some animations, more levels and the final sound and music.

I'm gonna post development in this thread so it might get a bit technical some times but I'm sure you guys can handle it

Thanks for reading!

joshsslade: Thanks!

I finished up the logo animation for the main menu and figured I would record a little preview of the game, so here are a video of the logo, menus and the three first levels

Hope you like it!

I finished up some character interactions today. Now you can scratch his back, poke both eyes and pull on his tail. Just for shits and giggles

This looks great! The tongue physics are really smooth and the character interaction in the menu is the kind of unnecessary greatness that I love.

Keep up the good work!
